As expected with the proposed development on Great Barr Hall we have already seen a healthy debate ensure from it.
The latest contribution is from the architects – Lapworth. This is in the form of a reply to many of the points brought up by the Beacon Action Group and they call it a community benefit statement.
In all this debate it has to be remembered that this land is now and has been for a while private land. The current owners are not under an obligation to provide a community asset as some want and the council can not enforce this.
I am minded towards this development and the statement linked above does mean my position has probably strengthened towards agreeing to it (not that it is my decision !).
If you could leave comments that would be good as all feedback is being collated by the relevant people.
